This is what it's all about! It's more than just lifting weights, counting reps, and getting sweaty. Training is an avenue for self improvement and self discovery. Thank you, Rachel, for working hard and making my job rewarding!
Thanks in part to boxing, I am my own valentine this year. #selflove #selfrespect #stronger #valentine #betterlatethannever
Shoutout to my trainer @a_team_strength
for constantly pushing me to surpass both my fitness and life PRs and prove myself wrong every single day. Scroll down for the shpiel of self-love.
In the last year, boxing and training has taught me more about my mind, my body, and all it’s amazing capabilities, than I could have ever imagined. In addition to gaining a skill that leaves me feeling strong and fierce when it comes to my independence and self-reliance, it has given me the confidence to take on the goals I previously thought were unobtainable. It has shown me that I have control over my life and my own success.
In the last year, I have learned how to love myself and everything I have to offer, flaws and all (if they even are *flaws* to begin with…). And perhaps most importantly, after all the relationships that have left me feeling inadequate and exhausted, I’ve learned that I am, in fact, enough. As long as I am my own best advocate, that will remain true.
Now, I am doing the things I thought I could not do (due to whatever arbitrary, bullshit feelings I had, instilled in me by past unworthy oppressors) every day of my life. There is so much empowerment to gain from doing something every day that scares the shit out of you, only to find that it is what you should have been doing all along.
If ever you are feeling as though you are not worthy of your goals, ask yourself “Why not me? Why not now?”. You have all the tools you need to success; you just need to believe that you do. Start today. You’ll thank yourself a year from now.
